The Hajj is the pilgrimage to the Holy City of Makkah during the month of Dhul-Hijjah. The performance of the Hajj is the fifth of the five pillars of Islam. For every Muslim able to perform Hajj, it is mandatory to make the journey at least once; for all Muslims it is the journey of a lifetime. The Ministry of Religious Affairs is responsible for the pilgrimage beyond Pakistan, Muslim pilgrims visit Saudi Arabia for Umra & Hajj and India for Ziarat of shrines of saints.
